"That's 9 items, lol. The suppressor, x3, and laser each count as one. Although how are you planning to use an x3 and a laser on one gun?"he's mounting all that stuff on the rifle so all 4 pieces becomes 1 item. so technically he's not breaking your rule Crazyking. and i've used a laser with a scope before, all ya gotta do is mount the laser so it shows up in the center of the sight picture. laser + scope= red dot. 1 out of 1 found this valuable. Do you?

Alright, but then again, it all comes back to the limits of the scenario, and the guy who could carry 60 lbs. of armor, and the guy who can fit Kansas on his gun... Just a few too many outcomes, and before someone makes a weight-based scenerio, they each have to count as one.
I.E. if you already had a silencer, red dot, x3, whatever on one gun, it's not totally impossible that you couldn't graft more siht onto it, but if it's a little gun with not much room then you couldn't.
Oh, and the x3 plus laser sounds a lot more useful than a conventional red dot. Do you find this valuable?

5.45x39 times 2
batteries(whichever CB uses)
5 packs beef jerky
Pocket sized items:
Badass shades and skull mask
EDIT* Badass shades because, y'know, they're badass. Do you find this valuable?
63. RE: Large Scavenging Scenario
Dec 11 2010, 9:07 PM ESTi would take-
Browning BLR lever-action rifle
.300 Winchester Magnum rounds 
Flint and magnesium fire starting kit
Snare kit (instructions, wire, etc.)
10 MRE meals
12 double-A batteries
Portable CB radio (49 MHz)
i chose the rifle because it is good for hunting and since i dont have much food, i would need to hunt and trap. This rifle would also protect me from any zeds. I then chose the crowbar because it is a pretty good melee weapon and it is great for opening doors and smashing windows if needed. I chose the magnesium fire starting kit because it will last far longer than zippo lighters and it is easy to make a fire with. I chose the snares for hunting in case i ran out of ammo or if i wanted to save the bullets for emergencies. I chose the 10 MRE meals because they are packed with fats and calories and some come with a heater, and even if they dont you can eat them cold. After that i chose the 10 double A batteries because that is probably the most common type of battery needed for electronics. and last i chose a portable CB radio so i could listen to any updates on the pandemic and listen for other survivals or safe zones.

64. RE: Large Scavenging Scenario
Dec 11 2010, 11:56 PM ESTNot rated by what ide grab first just what randomly how it ended on my paper
2. 50 - 5.56 NATO rounds for M4
3. Tomahawk (i feel its more lethal than a crowbar but more utilitarian than a wakizashi)
4. 10 MREs
5. Flint and Magnesium
6. STEVIE THE DOG :D (if he seemed nice and like he liked me) yeah im a sucker for big old puppies so sue me ... if not then the cans of green beens since i can reuse the cans to boil water or cook things in
1. CB radio (and spend my time learning how to work it correctly)
2. Bad ass sunglasses and Skull mask (good for eye and face protection from that b**** mother nature)
1 question though ... whys whiskey in a jar
i understand why moonshine would be but most whiskey is made by private distilleries and would put it right into a bottle for distribution
but yeah if you said bottle of reposado/anejo tequila i woulda had to trade something for that Do you find this valuable?
66. RE: Large Scavenging Scenario
Dec 12 2010, 12:22 PM EST | Post edited: Dec 12 2010, 4:01 PM ESTi'm taking:
the Glock 20
another 5 rounds for the Glock 20
I then take duct tape out of my BOB and tape the water, medicine, snare kit, chlorine tablets, remaining food, and a cross section of the remaining weapons and ammo(let's say the AK-74, wakazashi, tomahawk, and lots of ammo to trade) I just got and the dog I already have with me. I put the leash I already have on the new one, and try to make one for the dog I already had out of paracord.
If I didn't have my BOB, dog, or duct tape, but still had my small stuff(zippo, flashlight, multitool) I would swap the Glock and ammo for the water and carabiners. Do you find this valuable?
67. RE: Large Scavenging Scenario
Dec 12 2010, 2:50 PM EST | Post edited: Dec 12 2010, 2:54 PM ESTSince I have my B.O.B., I would take:
5.56 X 54 (50 rounds)
.223 (35 rounds) - My main load out gun is an AR-15
10 MRE's - Food, matches, extras.
12 Energy Bars - food that will be easy to eat on the walk
2 of the 4 gallons of distilled water - extra water and water storage, but 4 gallons will weigh to much to carry far.
2 Kevlar body armor (vest only)
12 AA Batteries
5 rounds of .45 acp.
If I came across this bonanza on the run with only half or less of my B.O.B. remaining and have discarded or loss my main weapon, I would take:
5.56X45 (50 rounds)
.223 (35 rounds)
3 - 30 round M-16 magazines
4 Gallons of distilled water
C.B. portable radio
12 AA Batteries

69. RE: Large Scavenging Scenario
Dec 12 2010, 6:21 PM ESTMy BOB contents are listed on my profile page and are considered essentials. My criteria for selection would be items that are just nice-to-haves. I'm also going to exempt myself from most of the firearms you listed because, realistically, they just wouldn't be available in a store in the city I live in.
I would take:
Steve because he's a living thing
Mossberg 500 as that's the closest to what the NYPD carries. I'm going to assume it was left there by a fallen or fleeing officer.
12 gauge buck
2 bottles of pills(plavix) for my heart condition. I can compensate with diet, but the meds is nice
+2 small items:
Portable CB radio Do you find this valuable?
70. RE: Large Scavenging Scenario
Jul 20 2011, 9:52 AM EDTI can't use a gun.
10 MRE Meals
2 Zippo Lighters (Assuming they're full) If not;
I can wear the mask and shades. I'm just putting these on.
I also bring along the dog (I hardly have to carry that(I intend on eating him))
I'm clipping the carabiners to my belt loops.
I take the cola and drink it on my way.
(So I cheated with the armour, carabiners, shades and dog. But my reasoning is true and in these tough Zday times, I can't afford to play by the rules) Do you find this valuable?

Jul 28 2011, 8:07 PM EDT | Post edited: Jul 28 2011, 8:17 PM EDTSince I can't use a gun, I'm not dumb enough to just pick a random one up and either try my luck or waste ammo practicing.
-5lbs of Jerky
-Stevie. I'll leave some food out for him for a couple of days, or until he trusts me and my other dog.
Stevie's only a year old, so he's not quite full-grown (YAY, he doesn't quite outsize me!) and will probably only be half-trained, if at all. Both a good and bad thing--he's still got instinct on his side, but I'll have to train him on the fly. And with my little watchdog mutt and a huge-ass guard dog, I now have a mobile, living alarm system.
I could also potentially train Stevie as a pack animal when we're on the move. 20-30lbs is essentially another person's gear. Do you find this valuable?
